Wharf of the Caravels Cruise

10 / 10
5 reviews | 34 travellers
Very beautiful excursion, it is worth navigating through the Odiel and Río Tinto marshes, visiting the replicas and museum of the caravels in which Columbus made his trip to America. Rafael is very nice, he explains to you from the port, the fishermen's neighborhood, types of boats and fishing, ... even corners to see the birds of the marshes, Saltés Island ... At the end he had a detail with the little one dragging him riding a paddle-surf board through the water that he enjoyed a lot. Recommended without a doubt!

Wharf of the Caravels Cruise

At the selected time, we'll come and pick you up from your hotel, or we'll meet directly at the docks in Punta Umbria and we'll start this estuary cruise to the Wharf of the Caravels. We'll sail through the Odiel Marshes Biosphere Reserve and you'll be able to admire the beauty of this stunning natural environment. As we cross the estuary, we'll see the mouths of the rivers Tinto and Odiel, which form part of these unique surroundings.

As we continue sailing, you'll also see the Columbus Monument, which commemorates this historical event. Do you want to know more about Columbus' famous voyage? We'll make another stop to visit the trio of replica ships: the Pinta, Niña and Santa María at the Wharf of the Caravels. You'll be able to board these famous ships and feel like a true explorer! 

We'll then return to Punta Umbria, where this Wharf of the Caravels Cruise will come to an end.
